Rocket's Tail Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

That November night, looking up into the sky
You said, "Hey, wish that was me up there
It's the biggest rocket I could find
And it's holding the night in it's arms
If only for a moment, I can't see the look in it's eyes
But I'm sure it must be laughing"

But it seemed to me the saddest thing I'd ever seen
And I thought you were crazy, wishing such a thing
I saw only a stick on fire, alone on it's journey
Home to the quickening ground
With no one there to catch it

I put on my pointed hat and my black and silver suit
And I, I check my gunpowder pack
And I strap the stick on my back
And dressed as a rocket on Waterloo Bridge
Nobody seems to see me
Then with the fuse in my hand
And now shooting into the night

And still as a rocket, I land in the river
Was it me said you were crazy?

I put on my cloudiest suit
Size 5 lightning boots, too

'Cause I am a rocket on fire
Look at me go with my tail on fire

With my tail on fire, on fire
